Lifting a engine out of a 256c cat skidloader

check around the rear section and see if there is a way of removing the door/weights. Use a lift bar on another fork lift and chain the motor to that bar . Undo all the bell housing bolts and engine mounts and lift a bit and back the fork lift to get the motor out.

Different Types of Fork Lift Trucks
Forklift trucks are very powerful industrial trucks that are used for
both lifting and transporting of materials.These days building
projects all use forklift trucks.
There are many different types of forklift truck. Here are some of the
most well known;

Electric forklifts - these forklifts are powered by lead-acid
batteries and includes scissor lifts, stackers and pallet jacks

Sideloader - this includes both Stand on End Control and Sit Down End Control.

Hand pallet truck - a pallet truck that is usually electrically powered.

Truck mounted forklift - usually a diesel run truck.

A small percentage of the forklift truck market includes high-end
speciality trucks.

In more recent years, Automated forklift trucks have been developed in
order to try and reduce the wages paid and operational costs of
running regular trucks. The popularity of automated forklifts has
grown massively.

How to upgrade my fork to more than 100mm

you sure can. You just need to get one that has the same size diameter steering tube as the one you currently have. You will need some special tools to remove the headset races that are pressed on to the fork and then you can move them to the new fork.

As far as "upgrading" to a longer travel fork, take into consideration that when you do this, you will change the geometry of the bike, effectively "slackening" the head tube angle and they will dramatically affect the steering of the bicycle, it will turn very "sluggishly" and feel like it flops from side to side almost.

Not a big deal if you are on the street, but in a technical offroad situation, this can be a problem if you are not used to the new handling dynamics.

Bicycle frames are literally built around the forks for their handling characteristics. But you say, "I see this done on motorcycles all the time." Yes this is true, but the devil is in the details. On motorcycles a "triple-tree" crown is used and typically the lower tree is machined with the proper offset factored in so that longer forks can be used without lifting the frame and affecting the handling. The one major factor that determines the handling characteristics of two wheeled travel is the measure of the front wheel's "trail". Google it and you will find volumes of information on it and how it is measured. For bicycles there is a "sweet spot" of trail measurement, most manufacturers keep this as a proprietary secret. Before you actually swap out the forks, you can calculate how the longer forks you plan on installing on your bike will affect the trail measurement on your bike to determine if you want to ride the bike this way, before you spend the money. Only you can decide if it is better to save up the money to buy a longer travel bike with the correct geometry or not.

good luck and wear a helmet. More suspension travel just allows you to ride faster off road, so you might be going OTB (over the bars) with the new, longer travel, option. :-)

How far can the forks move from side to side?

the forks can generally move only 6-12 inches from side to side by using the 3rd lever. However, all modern trucks have forks that are easy to manually move. Just lift up the pin that is holding the fork in its groove, and put it in the groove where it will work best for what you're doing. don't forget to lock it again with the same pin

Sounds like a bent shift fork or two. Replacing the bad shift forks is major surgery and is NOT recommended for the inexperienced mechanic. Several special tools are needed. The top end and gearbox get totally torn down just to get to the shift forks. This is a very expensive repair, guessing $2100 or so at the dealers. Bummer. Contact a few dealers to cofirm my view of the problem and the probable repair cost. The shift forks move left and right as the shift drum is rotated when you lift or push down on the shift pedal.

I have a CRF 150 F motorcycle and need to take the fork apart to

Before you have to spend money on the seal, try this.Get some camera film.You will find some around.Cut off the notched edge,cut one end at 45% so you have a piece about 4 inches long.Slide the 45% end into the fork seal and slowly work it up and down and also sideways to get it up into the fork.Once you get it in there,slowly move it up and down as you slide it all the way around the fork seal.Chances are you will FEEL some grit.Take it out and clean the film and start again.It might take 3-4 times to go all around the seal untill it's clean.This works very well and may save you from a fork seal rebuild.It costs nothing and some not so good shops do exactly this.Hope this helps you

4 spoons and 3 forks cost $15. 4 spoons and 1 fork cost $13. Find the cost of five forks.

Hi romanam
If spoon is "s" and fork is "f"
you get 2 equations like:
4s + 3f = 15 equation 1
4s + 1f = 13 equation 2
Equation (1) - equation (2) gives :
2f = 2 which means
1f = 1 (dividing both sides by 2)
! fork costs $1
5 forks cost $5
If you are happy with the answer, please give a rating
